The only beach view motel in Foxton Beach Sep 26, 2010
Foxton Beach Motel is the only one motel that located nearest to Foxton Beach. It is about five minutes’ drive to Foxton down town. This is a very simple motel. There are only 6-8 units however all of them have a sea view if you sit outside of the room. There are tables and chairs right outside the unit. There is a “Sunset walkway” right next to the motel where you can stroll along the walkway by the beach.
There were two beds in the studio unit, one single bed and one queen bed. This unit consists of a love seat, table and chairs, electronic heading blanket (that saved our life) TV, luggage racks, simple kitchen with stove, microwave, and refrigerator. Although there was a simple kitchen in the unit but we did not make use of the facility. I have to mention the stove here because it was the old fashion type where I don’t know how to use it! I have not seen something like a “meter” on the stove which I think is pretty funny.
Overall this unit was clean and the beds were comfortable. Bathroom is not as big but is big enough for both of us. I do have a complaint about the bathroom though – the sink! I do no know how to use the hot and cold water because there were two separate faucets! I was like: how? How to get warm water? It was either too cold or too hot!! This is also the first time I saw this kind of 2 faucets sink!
One thing I do like and I think it is very unique was – a notice on the wall where the TV located. I know you guys must be like: What???!!
Here was what indicated on that notice:
I am a little television so view me at your leisure.
To catch up on your favorite shows it’s your viewing pleasure.
Now sit ye down and turn me on and see what you may see.
But if my pictures not the best PLEASE do not play with me.
DO NOT attach any strangers (VCR’s, Playstations or Computers) to me,
As the may cause damage and you may be charged a fee.
Please don’t play with my knobs and buttons, I am shy and very coy.
And if you try to re-tune me you won’t have any joy.
Keep my volume down low.
So the neighbours won’t huff and blow.
I’m sorry sometimes I’m snowy, but it’s caused by the weather.
There’s nothing you can do for me, we’ll put up with it together.
Isn’t that sweet?
